When it comes to area rugs, they can often be overlooked as an accessory for your home. Do you have a room that feels incomplete, lacks warms and that inviting feeling? When you think about area rugs, don’t think floor covering (unless that’s your specific purpose!) think accessory….as in jewelry. When you think about how an area rug can finish off a room much the same way the right necklace can finish an outfit – then you’ll begin to see the value of what area rugs can do.
Area rugs are like magic carpets. They can transport and transform, “move” rooms (and their mood) from ordinary to extraordinary, change a room’s personality and character. They can do this through their color, shape, texture and size.
Area rugs are incredible design tools. They can define a space, act as a finishing touch, establish a color scheme, underlie a key piece of furniture, soften a hard surface, welcome guests to your home.
Area rugs improve your life. They can warm bare feet on cold surfaces, prevent wear in heavy traffic areas, protect children/elderly against injury from falls and absorb sound to reduce noise. Area rugs can also cover flaws in flooring and hide not so perfect carpeting. (Voila! Problem solved.)
Area rugs are the masters of change. They’re the only floor covering you can pick up and move, easily replace – change with the changing seasons. Tired of the way a room looks? Try changing your area rug before changing other things like wall colors. You’ll be amazed at what the change can do.
Area rugs cover the cost spectrum. They can be inexpensive and machine made (cotton and synthetic) to very expensive, handmade ancient weaves.
